Your ice cream is ready to enjoy!
Eat now if you can't wait, or freeze for firmer texture.

Should there be any leftovers (ha!), they can be frozen for up to a week.

I can't wait to try this with chocolate syrup incorporated!

Could you make chocolate icecream using cocoa/chocolate bars?
are those first two pictures right? that really doesn't look like cream, sugar and frozen berries. . . . .

Looks real to me ... It's the vanilla soaked into the sugar on top of the cream on top of the berries.  Yum.  :)

They sure are. It's just a way close-up of the frozen berries covered in cream and sugar. I used a lot of vanilla too.

Just be careful if you're using a blender to add the berries slowly. We've burnt out 5 or 6 blenders doing this. I even got a nice one with a big beefy motor one time. It lasted a week. A food processor is probably the way to go if you can.

I just got a food processor, and I remembered this, so it was the first thing I tried. Real ice cream! Delicious ice cream.

If I gain 100 lbs on this stuff, I'm blaming you.
